The capability of a substance to absorb heat energy; specifically, the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one mole or gram of a substance by one degree Celsius without any change of phase
(heat) (meas) The amount of heat required to raise by one degree the temperature of a unit mass of a substance F - capacite thermique S - capacidad calorifica
the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of an object by one degree Celsius (or Kelvin); it is represented by the symbol C and is given in units of J/K
The heat capacity of a thermistor is the amount of heat required to increase the body temperature of it by one degree centigrade (1°C) Heat capacity is a common rating of standard PTC thermistors and is expressed in watt-second per cubic inch per degree C (watt-sec/in3/°C) The heat capacity per unit volume relationship of standard PTC thermistors is approximately 50 watt-sec/in3/°C
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature or a defined amount of a pure substance by one degree See Btu, calorie, molar heat capacity, and specific heat
The amount of heat necessary to raise the temperature of a given mass 1°F Numerically, the mass expressed per unit of wall surface multiplied by the specific heat [Btu/ft2-°F]
The heat capacity of a thermistor is the amount of heat required to increase the body temperature of it by one degree centigrade (1°C) Heat capacity is a common rating of standard PTC thermistors and is expressed in watt-second per cubic inch per degree C (watt-sec/in3/°C) The heat capacity per unit volume relationship of standard PTC thermistors is approximately 50 watt-sec/in3/°C
The ratio of the °heat input to the °temperature increase in a system Note that this definition does not imply that a system contains heat, despite the name heat capacity
– The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a body by 1 degree, either at constant pressure or constant volume and without inducing a chemical change or change of phase
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a defined amount of a pure substance by one degree See Btu, calorie, molar heat capacity, and specific heat
the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a body by one degree kelvin In air or any other highly compressible fluid, its value differs considerably depending on whether heating occurs at constant volume or constant pressure, the latter being the larger
A measure of the ability of a material to store heat and, by definition, the amount of heat energy (calories) needed to raise the temperature of an object one degree Celsius, the heat capacity of the object being proportional to its mass
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one mole or one gram of a substance by one degree Celsius without change of phase. Ratio of heat absorbed by a material to the change in temperature. It is usually expressed as calories per degree in terms of the amount of the material being considered. Heat capacity and its temperature variation depend on differences in energy levels for atoms. Heat capacities are measured with a calorimeter and are important as a means of determining the entropies of materials. See also specific heat
Heat capacity of an assembly is the amount of heat necessary to raise the temperature of all the components of a unit area in the assembly 1°F It is calculated as the sum of the average thickness times the density times the specific heat for each component, and is expressed in Btu per square foot per °F
